Aristides Instruments Increase Production 10x with PTC Creo

  1. 1. Aristides Instruments Increase Production 10x with PTC Creo Aristides Instruments Increased Production 10x with PTC Creo. Aristides can optimize design very quickly. They have also reduced the number of prototypes by 50% and increased concept designs by 100%.
  2. 2. Aristides Instruments Increase Production 10x with PTC Creo Aristides Instruments is a guitar manufacturer from Amsterdam, which offers handmade high-end electric bass guitars of an alternative material, called Arium. With unique materials, an innovative design, and, above all, exceptional tone it defines itself from other conventional electric guitars. “More ideas become reality because you create organic shapes, like the double curved surfaces. It’s amazing, in the beginning of that journey, because the guitar is developing so rapidly.” “Production has increased 10 times over the number of guitars that we delivered two years ago because we optimize design very quickly using PTC Creo.” Erik Nieuwenhuisen, Production Manager 2

Initiatives Solution Results • Create a revolutionary new guitar with a new composite material and one-piece construction that produces consistent sound and tone while carefully balancing aesthetics • Designing with PTC Creo is much cleaner and more efficient: • Engineers can make numerous changes and run dozens of simulations every day • Reduce time to market by quickly creating a prototype to test with guitarists for ergonomics and playability • Increase production each year • More time for creativity • Design changes can be made rapidly • Reduced number of prototypes by 50%, increased concept designs by 100% • PTC Creo enables engineers to create multiple design iterations before prototyping • Time to market has been reduced by 50% – from an average of 12 months to 6 months. • PTC Creo models are used by the CNC machines to create the molds that are 100% accurate, saving hours of manual sanding • Increased production of guitars tenfold in two years 3
